I wondered. My bad for assuming the person who was a friend and needs to mourn was you. I guess the only person is Doug? Beats me, I don't read everyone on the list.

But this does help because I kind of figured that you, a comedien, would hardly have a problem with violating the norms of polite society.

This bit about Hitchens is interesting. I mean, my guess about contrarians is that they like to be the center of negative attention, no?

FTR, Ravi, when I croak, please make sure people at LBO say crappy things! As my loved ones know, everyone is supposed to have a giant party and if anyone buys flowers or useless crap other than food and booze I will come back to haunt you from the afterlife I don't believe in!
